In school we have been learning about Remembrance and Poppies. Miss Henry’s Primary 5/6 class drew and painted lovely poppies and learned all about why we wear a poppy. Every child in school put their own poppy made from a plastic bottle on our school railings.
Our School was chosen to take part in the Lantern Parade and Christmas Tree Light Switch On in Ballymena. The Streetwise team came in and we made our own lanterns and then dressed up as elves and paraded around town. We had so much fun 🙂
On Friday 23rd November 2018, we all wore spots for Pudsey and raised some money for Children in Need. How fab do we all look? Even the teachers dressed up!
Bushmills Day Two
We had another action filled day today. We all got up nice and early and after breakfast we went to Somerset Forest and went Orienteering. It was so much fun! After lunch we walked to the Giants’ Causeway. It was very very windy and cold, we took a cliff top path which had some lovely views. We went to the Causeway and learnt all about Finn McCool, we saw his camel, his granny and the Scottish Giant’s tooth!!
After leaving school so excited we arrived in Bushmills and had some lunch. We made up our beds and sorted out our dorms. After lunch we walked from Carrick-A-Rede Rope Bridge to Ballintoy Harbour. At the Harbour we played lots of team building games. It was so much fun. After Dinner we played football in the gym. We were all so tired we fell asleep just before midnight!!!!
Congratulations to our P6 and P7 pupils who took part and achieved Level 1 and Level 2 in Cycling Skills.
We were awarded the Ulster Scots Flagship Award. Over the past 3 years pupils in all classes took part in lots of activities such as Lambeg Drumming and Highland Dancing. Gary Blair presented the award to Miss Godfrey and some P7’s who achieved a Level 3 OCN Accreditation in Lambeg Drumming.
We were runners up in a UK wide competition for building sites. EHA presented our awards. You can see our posters at the new housing site beside the park on the Larne Road.
Johnny McCrystal from Sustrans showed everyone in assembly how to check that their bikes were road worthy. We all dressed up in bright clothes for ‘Ditch the Dark’ Day.
